Jonah Dart-McLean and Katie Madison

Jonah Dart-McLean is our Parks Maintenance Supervisor.  Jonah’s department oversees 40 plus park sites, a fully operational cemetery, set-up and care for five softball/ baseball fields and the maintenance and care of six buildings (which includes maintenance at the Astoria Aquatic Center).  While this would be enough to keep a large crew busy from day to day, Jonah manages to keep all of these sites and facilities running smoothly with a very small staff.  Over the summer, this included one additional full-time staff, plus two to three part-time temporary staff.  Jonah is exceedingly organized and goes to great lengths to ensure each and every one of our facilities and sites are safe.


Katie Madison is one of our preschool Sunflower teachers at Lil' Sprouts. She works hard with her co-teachers to help create fun, engaging lessons and activities for the kids. Katie is a big team player and is someone you can always on count and will help out her co-teachers and other classrooms in any way she can. Her positive attitude and friendly smile is a huge asset to the Lil' Sprouts team.

Thank you both!
